- PSA 50% off Specialized tyres
Ordered an Eliminator 29×2.3 last night – I’m hoping it’s a good size, my research suggested that the 2.6 is bigger than the Butcher 2.6 (but still not quite 2.6”) whilst the 2.3 is actually more like a 2.4” (which would perfectly match the 2.4” Hillbilly 2.6 I have up front.
Is that clear?!! 😉Posted 2 months agochiefgrooveguruMember
“I was looking at the butcher and hillbilly 2.6, are they much bigger than a 2.35 magic mary?”
The Butcher is a bit bigger in volume but similar width at the knobs. Hillbilly very similar in size to MM, maybe a little smaller – definitely smaller volume than the Butcher. Both are 62-63mm at the side knobs on 30mm rims.
I think the Eliminator is more like a DHR2 – that’s what I’m hoping! The Butcher is like the DHF in that neither are great at braking.Posted 2 months agowelshfarmerSubscriber
Hillbilly is the main rough condition tyre in the range and closest equivalent to the Shorty/Magic Mary spikey type tyre. Butcher is very similar to the DHF. Slaughter is similar to DHR SemiSlick or a Rock Razer. Rock Razer? Not sure. Somewhere between a DHR2 and a DHR SS. Similar perhaps to a WTB Trail boss but with bigger side knobs (no bad thing).Posted 2 months ago
